    1. Emily is a little put out and sulky when her father has to work instead of making snow animals with her. She focuses her anger on making a huge snow dinosaur that grows and grows and she feeds it more snow food. But in the end, it gets out of hand and she crushes it to save her father from being eaten.Cute illustrations.

    2. This book is an excellent read-aloud about a little girl who resents her father being too busy to play with her in the snow. She builds an extremely hungry snow-dinosaur who takes her anger and gets bigger and bigger, until she must save her father from this ferocious beast. The artwork is precise and the emotions are conveyed realistically on the characters faces.

    3. Cute idea! Love the sense of imagination and how the dad comes around in the end. I enjoyed the dino aspect clever! It is amazing how much power hot chocolate holds.
